Is there any exception to the sale of a Melbourne property

This answer was rated:

Is there any exception to the sale of a Melbourne property requiring a section 32 vendor statement if the property is a deceased estate?


 


The circumstances:


A building permit should have been applied for alterations to the units before the mother died, and the family now wish to sell the units. They would need to declare the illegal building works in the vendor statement.

Hello

There would be a statement, but signed by the solicitor dealing with the conveyance.

They will prepare or at least sign the statement.

Please accept

Thank you Daniel



Does that mean the solicitor would have to declare the non building permitted works in the statement?

Yes, and the benefit is, he is a solicitor, a learned person. So he / she has no defense against not knowing about the property.
